Crypto City Miami's Web3 Events Are Underway, Can You Spot Pop?
Miami is a hub for all things crypto. Join Popoo at the Miami Web3 and check out some of Miami's many events.
Ah Miami, a spectacular city, one that embraced blockchain technology and everything that came with it with open arms. Miami has been home to many crypto and Web3 events for years now. This is fascinating considering the fact the blockchain sector is still in its early phases. No doubt, Miami began with the vision of becoming a crypto city, and today, the city is indeed worthy of that title. The vision of becoming a crypto hub is all thanks to Miami's Mayor - Francis X. Suarez.
Suarez took many initiatives towards turning Miami into the crypto city it is today. For one, he facilitated many blockchain events to help crypto-centric companies establish themselves in Miami. In addition, he also agreed to receive his salary in Bitcoin (BTC). He even agreed to turn his 401K pension into Bitcoin as well. As for Miami itself, the city absolutely screams crypto. Residents can pay their bills in crypto and can even receive their salary in crypto. The city's basketball team - Miami Heat, have also shown their support in the form of launching official NFTs.
Presently, Miami is hosting an array of crypto, blockchain, Web3, DeFi, and NFT events all over the city! Between November 21 to December 10, the city will be filled with fellow crypto and blockchain enthusiasts from all around the world. Certainly, the crypto community does not miss a chance to engage with fellow crypto believers! Web3 has opened doors to bring fairness and opportunities across the world, and Miami offers a city-wide platform to put Web3 projects in the limelight.
One of the major events taking place in Miami is Miami Web3. Taking place at InterContinental Miami at the 100 Chopin Plaza, this 3-day event will keep the focus on all things Web3. Mayor Suarez himself will be joining in for a fireside chat along with many other speakers who will highlight expectations and possibilities within the Web3 realm. Other topics will range from the need for modernized crypto regulations to the future of TradeFi and DeFi.

Immerse Global Summit
Taking place at the Fontainebleau Hotel between December 5 to 7 is the Immerse Global Summit.

With over 50 speakers already confirmed, and more being added to the roster, the event certainly seems like a space to mingle with thought and industry leaders.
So far, the shiny city of Miami has seen many historically iconic moments occur within the crypto realm. For instance, in 2014, Vitalik Buterin unveiled his idea for a decentralized, programmable smart contract blockchain, now called Ethereum. At the same Bitcoin conference in Miami, the President of El Salvador made another iconic announcement in 2021 which was to make Bitcoin a legal tender within the nation.
